Ludlow/Mortimer Forest/Bringewood STW Forum Ride – Any one?
I’ve just been checking Sunday’s weather and it doesn’t look too great 🙁
At the moment the weather men are unsure quite how much rain will be falling on Ludlow come Sunday morning, but it look like alot! So I propose checking again on Saturday when they make their minds up, then I’ll post again to confirm the ride is still on.
As it stands I’ll still be doing the ride, but some folks may find this ride very hard going in the wet. I know I do!

OK, I’m game on, so are a few more locals, so lets have a roll call please! Who’s else wants to tag along this Sunday 7th?
I can confirm it will be a 9.30am start from High Vinnalls car park. Ride will include the cafe stop at Croft. If the rain doesn’t spoil it there will also be some tidy views from both the top of the High Vinnals and Croft Ambrey, so pack your camera! 😉Posted 8 years ago
Zangolin, it was pretty aweful here at 9.30, but it stopped raining by 10.30 and the sun even showed by lunch time. Just me and Edward showed – we’re hard core lads you see 😈
Had a crackin’ ride over to Croft, though the cafe was out of my favourite Wigmore Cider so I had to make do with a cup of tea. Not so hard core afterall 🙁 .
The trails weren’t anywhere near as muddy as I thought they’d be, so there weren’t even any Giraffe on ice moments. Views from Croft iron age fort were fab, as was the view from the top of the Vinnalls near the end of the ride.
Boo to the slackers, you missed a tidy ride!
I’m running the same ride again on Sunday 5th July. The sunshine has been pre-ordered 😀Posted 8 years ago
About 4.5 hrs if the weather is good 8) If not then 3.5hrs max.
I’m aiming for a 9.30am start on Sunday 5th from High Vinnalls carpark as previously described. The mileage on this ride isn’t too high, and average speed will be low due to the mix of terrain. Cracking singletrack will be on offer, as well as good views of Herefordshire/Mid-Wales/Welsh Marches and a good cafe stop en route too.
Just so other folks know: I’m away in France from 25th to 30th, so will be out of touch with this thread, but come rain or shine I’ll still be doing this ride on the 5th. Everyone is welcome – more the better!
I’ll post again in the days before the ride.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – 5th July ride cancelled!
Sorry about the short notice but afraid I’m going to have to cancel this weekend’s ride on 5th July as my mother’s just had a stroke while I was in Morzine. She’s ok, but I need to be on close hand incase there are any complications.
Will re-organise something soon.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – RIDE CANCELLED(Again!)
I'm going to have to cancel this Sunday's(26th) ride. My new girlfriend has contracted swine flu, and I'm now suffering from aches and temperature too, so not going to be riding a bike any time soon 🙁
I'm starting to think this Ludlow forum ride is cursed. Sorry guys!Posted 8 years ago
